Bloggers right, left, and tech
Om Malik, senior writer with Business 2.0 and writer of a broadband blog, spreads the word about where the money's coming from.
Off the Kuff talks about how the ban hurts competition.
Why? If the cost is so low that it's viable for cities and even tiny towns to offer it as a basic service for their citizens, then why shouldn't they be allowed to do so? I keep hearing, in this day and age of mega telco mergers, that the word of the day is "bundling", as in "You may not be able to get a better deal on long-distance service, but if you buy our completelocal/long-distance/high-speed Internet/cable/satellite TV bundle, you'll see savings." Why not make SBC and Time Warner and whoever else is bitching about this compete on that turf?Posted by alevin at March 6, 2005 07:35 PM
